Rockford Memorial Hospital Decontamination Room

Anthrax, small pox, chemical waste; between terrorist and common accidents, hospitals are forced to prepare for the worst.

On Friday, Rockford Memorial Hospital showed off its new state of the art decontamination room.

RMH is the regions disaster hospital, so when chaos hits, it's one of the first medical centers called. The hospital's emergency disaster director says the decontamination room is a tool he hopes they never have to use, but one he says the area desperately needed.
